Corruption in Sierra Leone 2003 - 2022
The causes of corruption lie in part in political and cultural reasons. Ineffective law enforcement may further promote it. It is striking that it is regularly lower in democratically governed countries (form of government in Sierra Leone: Presidential republic). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In Sierra Leone, per capita income is 500 USD annually, which is extremely low by global standards. The cost of living is well below the global average, indicating massive socioeconomic problems.
